Blue hazed beauty

Sydney can be a bit much sometimes. Consistency in stimuli means that it’s hard to switch off. At times living within a local bubble can seem to be a well lubricated mix of comfort, laziness and lack of imagination.

Zoom out 6 times on Google Maps and what you’ll realise, is that our concrete jungle is nestled tightly in amongst much greenery, mountains and some incredible natural landforms. Escape. Find an adventure in the forest. Recently photographer Jason Corroto and a few fellow Avalonians did just that.

“With a 3am car pack and a 2 hour drive out of Sydney. We knew we needed a weekend away from the bubble of the Northern Beaches. Who would have thought you could get lost in the bush and blue hazed beauty of the Blue Mountains, so close to home. And that’s exactly what we did for a few days!”
